Whether you’ve just started in a supervisory role or you’re an experienced manager, we are here to support you as you empower your staff. We’ve compiled resources to assist you with the recruitment/onboarding process, performance management and 360-degree feedback. For information on manager training, check the Growth Opportunities page.

The role of a manager is vital to the institution and can be the determining factor of whether an employee stays or leaves. Our goal of providing a consistent employee experience starts with a conversation. This conversation needs to be regular and meaningful throughout your employee’s career journey. In order to have these conversations, managers need to know the job responsibilities of each of their employees.

Supervisory responsibilities

If you supervise AUPE employees, you and your employee need to be familiar with their Position Description Questionnaire (PDQ). If you supervise Admin/Excluded staff, you and your employee need to be familiar with their Job Profile. If you supervise Faculty, you need to be familiar with the role description of a Faculty member.

These documents provide detailed information about the role and review of these with your direct report is important.

These should be kept current. If you need a copy, please contact HR, as we may have the most recent version. We can also help in drafting a new one.
